Authorities have arrested a Vinton County man and say charges are expected against two others over allegations saying they downloaded and shared child pornography.

Attorney General Mike DeWine said Tuesday that his office is targeting such suspects to send a message to anyone else who is thinking of doing the same. He says offenders will be caught.

DeWine says investigators arrested Robert Peoples Jr., 29, of Hamden on a charge of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.

Two other suspects in unrelated cases near Toledo and Cleveland were questioned on similar charges and face prosecution.

DeWine says sharing child pornography is a sickening and despicable crime that repeatedly re-victimizes children every time an image or video is shared.
